The 175 4FRNT VCT's are a great ski! They are really fun to ski. If you like descently wide skis then these are the skis for you. Handles everywhere great!
The VCT's perform very well in the powder. They are pretty good on boxes. They are fun on the groomers. They have a wide turning radius. Perform very well switch. And are overall a great ski.
The design of the VCT's is very nice. I really like the shape of the ski. The graphics are really sick!
It was worth the money. Maybe it was a little bit expensive. I paid $600 for them which is pretty good. Usually they are a $700 dollar ski though. I have not tried the ski to its full potential, so Im not shure if it is worth the money.
The flex is a MEGA core, which is a maple core. It is a pretty solid core but the skis are pretty flexy. I mounted my 175 VCT's an inch back from symmetrical center and they work great.I could butter mine, but it is a bit tricky. The nose is softer than the tail.
I have tried them for two days and already the top sheet is chipping off a little bit. I have a couple chips on the tips of my skis and a couple chips in the mid section of the ski. The chips are probably from my skis hitting each other.
